provoked this completely. israel is acting 100% in self-defense. i feel a little happier if the obama administration were more precise about that and not play the game this is a situation where we have to de-escalate everybody. there is only one side that needs to be deescalated, that is the palestinians. if they continue to do it israel will invade them and have to take matters into their own hands and try to destroy hamas. >> greta: which would be catastrophic to many palestinians. according to the state department when secretary of state hillary clinton met with prime minister netanyahu to talk about this topic about de-escalate. tell me how you think -- what is that conversation? >> i can't imagine. the conversation about deescalation, has to be with the palestinians. i don't know what she would have been saying. don't let them bomb you and don't respond? it's absurd. it's again part of this moral equivalency we've again been going through 20 years in the way we deal with this which only encourages hamas. they are further encourage by the muslim brotherhood running egypt, morsi wh

must exercise complete restraint and they condemn trillion for what it is doing in its own defense. for months, the rockets were sitting israel and israel's ambassador to the u.n. was pleading with the u.n. security council to do something, month after month, hundreds and hundreds of rockets and not until israel took action does the u.n. treat this as a crisis. >>eric: we need to point out a lot of the rockets that were flown into israel through or from gaza were iranian made. >>guest: yes. hamas is iranian backed, trained, supported, and funded. these are missiles with a longer range that can hit tel aviv, jerusalem, and this is getting very dangerous. remember, iran also backed the terrorist group hezbollah to the north in lebanon. >>eric: thank you, thank you are have much for joining us. we have police disrupting or taking a look at what is going on with the protests at lax airport. this is a live shot right there. your taxes are going up and that has grover norquist fired up, the antitax man. next. >>eric: look on the left side your screen, los angeles airport, lamb, where pro

defense system. the israelis say they don't consider this a real violation of the cease-fire, so, therefore, it is, indeed, holding. here, however, people are actually quite skeptical. they say they have had things like this in the past, where there have been big israeli military operations, there have been bombings in gaza, and in the end, however, hamas was still there. hamas managed to regroup, hamas managed to get new weapons, and hamas managed to bomb cities like this one again. nevertheless, of course, after eight days of almost nonstop rocket attacks on this town and on other towns, there are also people, especially other people, who have children, who are now saying this is the first time that they can actually go out with their kids without having to fear those sirens go off, aleaa alina. >> fred, as you well know, benjamin netanyahu did sort of leave the door open for further military offensive, even as this cease-fire holds. what can you tell us about the troop buildup there along the border? >> reporter: yeah, it's very interesting. because that's something that he's
up for their defense. >> bottom line, when there is trouble in the middle east, folks tend to look here to the white house. and there are many examples in the course of history of events overtaking the plans of a white house team. gregg. >> gregg: on eight looker note. what do we know about how the president celebrated this thanksgiving? >> he made phone calls to 10 deployed service members. we are told that he thanked them for their service and sacrifice and also wanted to wish them and their families a very happy thanksgiving. the president had a lighter moment a little earlier today. welcomed the oregon state men's basketball team into the oval office. the first lady's brother coaches the team. the first family and the basketball team also served less fortunate yesterday in washington, d.c. foodbank handing out meals to children and seniors, as for the first family thanksgiving meal pretty traditional what you would expect. turkey, all the fixings, also included six different kinds of pie. >> six kinds of pie? oh, man. >> none for me. >> get in on some of that mike. get in there
that a victory. but they're trying to make hay and get local support. >> and they lost their key defense chief as well. there was another major player over the last few days. that's been egypt and mohamed morsi. he's largely credited by the u.s. for helping the cease-fire deal happen. but he did something extraordinary overnight, which he gave himself some new administrative powers, essentially makes all of this rulings over the last five months and going forward immune from any kind of legal challenges. some people are saying this is just the next step in becoming more of a dictator here. was he taking advantage of the situation? >> well, we'll have to watch this closely. it appears, you know, the timing is curious. he's gotten the support and this pump, particularly for this role in mediating the cease-fire from the united states, and from others. he's really seen as emerging stronger from this. but this is an issue that goes back to whether the judiciary in egypt was appointed by mubarak and a check on the executive branch. and what he said is this is a temporary, until they have a constitu
